But damn if this post season doesn't move him into the top 7 all time PFs.

dirk was a top 7 power forward before this year.

All I have to say is, Dirk averaged 6 free throws a game during the season. This is one hell of an anomaly!

Maybe you should tell your team to not blatantly foul Dirk every time he posted up.

LOL

If that's what you call it. There is a new sheriff in town...the new D-Whistle! That you argue about a guy who got four times as many free throws as he normally does is laughable. There wasn't any BLATANT about it. They were soft, weak fouls meant for an old team who can't hang with the young bucks in any kind of legit manner.

I mean, all of Westbrook's are driving to the basket.

Most of KD's were on drives with the exception of the 1 on Terry and a similar one on action trying to break to the ball. I thought that foul Dirk put on him on the break was flagrant as well

Dirk was getting to the line on back down action.

I mean, dude shot 24 fts and is going to the locker room with not 1 bump or bruise on him. I don't think he even touched the floor the whole game.

He took 3 shots in the paint.

The 3rd was especially atrocious, he took 13 in that quarter as a result of being in the penalty.

That said, Russ still played a shitty game and I'm back on the trade Russ bandwagon.

The majroity of the FT's both dudes got were legit. There were some sketchy ones, but superstars get those anyways.

Durant was driving and being aggressive. And Dirk, well, Dirk was just out of this world. He was not missing. Thunder started playing him physical and that resulted in a lot of trips to the line.

Lots of cocky talk from fans of a team who is actually listed in the definition of choke in Merriam Websters!

How about you let your team actually do something before you talk?

As for Thunder fans, anything beyond our first playoff series win is just gravy! I'm happy either way, because there's nowhere to go but up.

The Thunder couldn't guard him for shit. They tried harder and harder but couldn't without touching Dirk's face, arms, hands, or bumping him etc. when he shot.

I can think of several instances were Dirk faked and the Thunder player just went right past him. Dirk owned the Thunder defense tonight and they had no answer. Simple as that.

Nothing but get to the WCF in their third year. However, I'm not being cocky about a game. Go read a few of DMAVS41's posts if you want to know what I'm referring to.

Durant got 3 total bs calls i can think of just off the top of my head.

ROFL....Durant gets so many more calls than Dirk its a joke. One game....one game....and even then Dirk only shot 3 more legit free throws.

Wow.....the Dirk hate here is ****ing hilarious.

He plays one of the best playoff games ever and there is more hate than praise here.

I think he was top 7, but I didnt want to over step things because outside of the Big 4 PF's: KG, Duncan, Malone, Barkley, I think Dirk has a strong case for number 5, but I could be forgetting a couple of guys which is why I said, his play so far is solidifying him as a top 7, but he could very well be number 5. Knocking one of those guys down a peg would take a miracle though.
